This month has been all about painting the food straight from life.
30 minutes, gouache, food. Once I established my technique for this
series it I decided to just stick with it for the whole month. Seven days
left to keep up the same type of imagery and then I'm
really ready to move on and be more magical and imaginary in my
paintings. Until then another week of food.

The best eggs I've ever tasted are the ones my brother Ivan
cooks for his ramen. His new restaurant will open in NYC this
summer, IvanRamen, down on the lower east side. He already
has 2 shops in Tokyo that are out of this world, but now I don't
need to travel 13 hours to eat his food.
The eggs he cooks are the perfect texture and oh so beautiful.
I'm focusing on eggs here but everything he makes is so delicious.
Make it down there when he opens!

Yesterdays almond butter was so BROWN...I really needed to be
colorful today, so I dug out the ancient leftover Halloween candy that
no one touches. I don't know why we don't just throw it away, it's sort
of sticky. The props here will go straight into the garbage can. If I'm
going to splurge on sweets it's going to be a big scoop of ice cream.

A big giant spoonful of gooey almond butter. It's my favorite!
And on a green apple is so good too. This is the first one that
quite hard to keep from eating while I was painting it. I'm having
it now. Yum.

This is a 2nd go for Illustration Friday, liquid. My first is here. The blob
on the table is supposed to be a drip of water, This one was very difficult.
I love trying though. I worked on making the whole thing liquidy looking

A big puffy everything bagel. I'm admitting here that sometimes
I go over the 30 minutes, basically because if I don't feel finished
it's really hard to just stop. This one I did just stop.
I don't eat bread so this was a bit torturous to have in front of me.
I guess that's what made it easier to say, "I'm done"

The sage in my garden is still there after the winter, very woody
and leggy with dried flower pods all over the top of them. I had
hung a branch of them to dry a few weeks ago so here is the live
plant and the dried one. I am submitting this one to Illustration
Friday too, for the word future. Maybe a bit of a stretch, maybe
more like before/after?
